on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it easier to raise, they are saying between $40 to $50. so there is a smaller nature. that's historically consistent. inaugural speeches tend to be over hyped and anti-climactic, and the second one, even more so. >> thanks. >> a look back at the president's first term and a look ahead, when we come back. >> this is fox new

"our budget will get us over the next several years to the point where we can look the american people in the money th speaking to this, senator sessions had this to say. "to look the american people in the eye and make such a statement remains the most direct and important false assertion during ng my entire t in washington, unquote. >> question is jacob lew a shoe- in for treasury secretary or does president obama have a fight on his hand? >> i don't know if you would call him a shoe-in. he is going to be touched up a bit by the republicans but he is going to be confirmed. does obama have a fight object his hands? you bet
all equally miserable. welcome to the america of obama. 25-year-old children living with parents, elderly begging for groceries because they cannot afford their own retirement. i am not surprised. things have not been going well the last five years. >> let's pull up a survey here. this is a prosperity survey. in is the top ten places to live from number one is norway. then denmark. sweden. australia. new zealand. canada. finland. here is the deal. how do we climb back to the top ten, peter? >>peter: start growing and competing more effectively. all of these places compete effectively. it is not whether they have big or small government. some have big government but what they have that we don't: effective government that delivers services at a reasonable price. the youngs have national health care. they do it for 50 percent less than we do. their taxes are not so high or their taxes go do help them opposed to paying for mindless bureaucracy. >> norway is number one. peter, will you renounce your citizenship or america still the best country to live? >> why would i renounce being a
has waned after four tough economic years. what happened? what is next? >> we gather on this date because we have chosen hope over fear. unity of purpose over conflict and discord. >> president obama swept into the presidency on the wings of change, the pick of an energized electorate, the first african-american president. he started on day one with action on an early promise. his order to close the facility at guantanamo bay in one year. >> is this a separate executive order with respect to how we will dispose of the detainees? >> gitmo remains open almost four years to the day after that signing. >> as he said on the trail in 2008 and 2012, the economy was the job won. >> the bill is passed. >> president obama had big hopes for the $787 billion stimulus bill which squeaked through congress in february of 2009 with just three republicans in the senate and no one in the house of representatives voting for it. >> the most sweeping economic recovery package to our history. i hope this investment will ignite our imagination. >> he was calling for the bailout of automakers, general mo
obama faces tough national security challenges over the next four years. guarding against plots by terrorist groups certainly a top priority for the president, but the u.s. also faces the possibility of cyber attacks. attacks that could really disrupt communication and banking and transportation, and our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence has an in-depth look into those threats to national security. >> reporter: terror risks are emotionalizing in mali, which could become the next launching pad for plots against america. a new challenge for national security. keep us safe. sounds simple. but over the next four years, america's security could be tested in complex ways. forget the wold care. not even a centralized al qaeda in one country. >> there are still tariearrorisn hard to reach countries planning attacks against us. >> reporter: mali and somali, hoping they don't sfwurn the safehavens al qaeda had. but outside afghanistan, the obama administration has been hesitant to put more boots on the ground. so they'll continue to rely heavily on drones. >> predators and reapers are
talked at the beginning about presidential leadership and you worked in the obama white house for a year or so. the president has too deal with the debt ceiling. he wants to pass major immigration reform. >> absolutely. >> chris: do something about climate change. has he told you how much political capital he is willing to spend on what is going to be a very tough fight? >> i think that the president has demonstrated tremendous leadership on this issue. i think the country rallied around him and h his leadership because he really was a voice for the parents who lost a child. >> chris: has he told you how much -- >> and i see from his actions and we hear from the white house and we hear from the vice president that they are going to lay down political capital on the issue and i think the one thing i would say to those people like larry and others who said we can't do anything about these issues is that whether it comes from the background checks or dealing with high capacity magazines which was the issue in newtown we can take action and to say that we should do nothing really doesn't res
in november. and as someone who participated in the inaugural for president obama four years ago and we had absolutely no idea what we were doing, i can tell you that the folks at the jsic regardless of who the chair is and the folks at jtf are there ready for you when you walk in the door and really do a lot of the logistical lift on this. it's really more our job just to make sure the president ice kind of imprint is put on some of these events. one of the ways we do that is in the parade, as the colonel mentioned, along with all these military elements there are 58 different groups, 58 different groups, floats and vehicles. these are from all 50 states. they are everything from the virginia military institute just across the river in virginia down in southern virginia which has marched in a number of inaugural parades all the way through a group, one of my favorites, a group from maine of unicyclists that will be joining us. i believe they are called -- let me get the name right -- the jim dandies, the jim, of course, being spelled g-y-m in this case. the president will stand and watch t
it over the years, particularly under president obama in 2009 when we tripled our forces and we decided to go after the taliban, essentially join afghanistan's civil war and nation build. the idea that we're going to be able to leave behind a self-sustaining capable afghanistan able to for a government to keep control of its territory, we're not going to be able to do it. it was a mistake to try. we won't achieve that result. essentially what we'll fall back to is what we could have years ago, a limited mission with trainers and advisers on the ground and when we have to, we'll send in special forces or drones to deal with if there are, for example, remnants of al qaeda who move back into the country. >> the president that wants to run the pentagon, chuck hagel, former senator. here was the president announcing that pick earlier this week. >> i came to admire his courage and his judgment, his willingness to speak his mind even if it wasn't popular, even if it defied the conventional wisdom, and that's exactly the spirit i want on my national security team. >> senator corker, you had som
attack since before obama even got into office, and i think a lot of us shared that concern several years ago, and it was reenforced when he said to the reference of remember these people stick to their guns and their religion, and when he made that statement, i think that was really a wakeup call for a lot of people. >> we have behind you semiautomatic rifles, and there are people who stricter gun regulation in the united states. why do you need a semiautomatic rifle if you're a firearm supporter. how would you react to them? >> semiautomatic rifles, for example, the ar-15, is really part of our culture. anybody that grew up, did military service in the 70s, was trained on an m-16, and it's kind of consistent with what we do with appreciating using similar-type weapons that we were trained on in the military, but this is a civilian legal version of the same thing. >> quickly, supporters of the second amendment believe in their need and right to protect the citizenry against aty rankle government, is that accurate? >> it is. a lot of that is lost in translation where people don't realize
from getting the flu for years. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." we begin now with a guessing game about what is in president obama's so called comprehensive proposals to cut down on gun violence. the president and vice president are set to unveil their plans tomorrow and even though officials are trying to keep the deal under wraps, we already know what is in the plan. jessica yellin has been working her sources and joins us live now. what do you know? >> joe, today vice president biden delivered his plan to the president just a month after the newtown shootings and among the top recommendations that the president will unveil tomorrow we're told are enhanced background checks for gun sales of all kinds. the president has outlined two types of paths forward for the president. he has told legislators that he is going to give the president 19 different executive actions that the president can take essentially on his own without any congressional action and this could include better enforcement. keeping data on where the guns are. the government sto
massacre is changing attitudes on capitol hill. >>> president obama sworn in for his second term next week. today preparations already are underway in the u.s. capital. the inauguration is expected to be smaller this year than it was in 2009 but will still fee he tour a star studded lineup and enthusiastic mood but tempered by high unemployment and a still faltering economy. if you are feeling tense, here is an idea gaining momentum. get out there and throw a snowball. thousands in seattle turning out for the largest ice slinging fight. the nation's most prominent implementing a new and controversial policy. the washington national cathedral will soon begin allowing same-sex marriages. the church will be among the first episcopal congregations to unemployment lement the new right of marriage. it care areries huge symbolism and advocates of traditional marriage say in their opinion it is the wrong move. joining us is john eastman and reverend gary hall dean of the national cathedral. we will be he begin the conversation with dean hall. thank you for joining us. why this decision, why now?
to achieve over the next four years? guest: i think it signals two things. one signals that he wants an independent, no-nonsense voice at the table on the president. senator chuck hagel has had a close relationship with president obama. and i happen to know from a number of sources that the quality of conversation, that the nature of their conversation is a very direct, often not in agreement and that the president is not bringing on board a yes man. the second thing we need to know is that we have been dealing with chuck hagel and a way that we ought to be debating the secretary of state. this will be the secretary of defense. this is about deploying power or run the world and managing strategic assets and managing a shift where the president has said that we now have or did we have overweighted our resources in the middle east and south asia and we have underweighted our presence in asia looking at china. that shift is like moving a giant ship of spending, resources, american men and women being deployed in different places, as well as strategic asset purchasing, what weapons and t
